As a painter working from life and urban surroundings, Stefan Berg is interested in perceptual experience. Drawn to landscapes where nature and architecture converges, Berg’s documentarian vistas are created through the immersion of his environment, and the fluctuating elements that are unique to each painting experience. Returning to familiar landscapes with cumulative inquiry, Berg has painted on-site and from memory, the evanescence of time, exploring temporality and duration. As a result, his paintings are evocative of the mechanics of seeing, layering and revising the passing light and atmosphere observed over days, sometimes months, even years.
